The easiest (and healthiest) recipe for home fries I've ever come across. This is an essential side dish for grilled meat at our house! Everybody loves them and I hope you do too.


  1. Slice washed, unpeeled potatoes into wedges, about a quarter of an inch thick.
  2. Toss potato wedges with olive oil and place in baking pan (it's a good idea to coat the pan with cooking spray to prevent sticking).
  3. Sprinkle liberally with garlic salt and black pepper.
  4. Bake 30 min at 400 degrees; broil for 1-2 minutes to make fries crispy, and serve hot.

I've been doing "wedge" potatoes like this for a few years now and they are so delicious. Another great seasoning to add to them is cajun spice mix - add it in with the salt and pepper and I promise you will love the flavour!

Sprinkle garlic powder liberally; then add very little garlic salt. Delicious!!!

Cooked as per recipe and the only sub I made was to use regular salt instead of garlic salt and I did cut a little thicker and peeled the potatoes (otherwise I would have been the only one eating them), and allowed 45 minutes to cook them in a 225C oven, sorry but they lacked crispiness and I did turn them at the half way mark but they where still tasty and still better than a commercial frozen brand of potatoe.
